Assiniboine Lodge, the Naiset Huts Cooking Cabin and the Hind Hut are closed for the season.  

The Naiset Huts are open in the off-season, but you need to bring you own compressed fire logs for the woodstoves located inside the hut for heating and bring your own campstove/cooking gear.  You must cook outside.  There is no charge to stay at Naiset during the off-season, but we do ask that you let us know one week in advance if you plan to stay at Naiset.  You are on your own for any emergencies that occur in the off-season.

Assiniboine Provincial Park campgrounds are open in the off-season (there is no charge for off-season camping).  You need to be prepared for winter camping and you are on your own for any emergencies that occur in the off-season.  

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING ASSINIBOINE PROVINCIAL PARK

October 18, 2017:  Simpson River Trail to Surprise Creek Cabin, Surprise Creek Trail to Ferro Pass and Eohippus Lake Trail are closed until further notice.

Due to damage sustained during the 2017 Verdant Creek forest fire, the Simpson River trail from the boundary of Kootenay National Park to the Surprise Creek Cabin, the entire Surprise Creek trail from Surprise Cabin to Ferro Pass and the Eohippus Lake Trail will remain closed until fire damage can be properly assessed and repaired.

The former lower Simpson River trail (below Porcupine Campground) and Scoup Camp have not been maintained for well over a decade.  This area was heavily impacted by the Verdant Creek fire.  BC Parks will continue to not maintain any sort of trail or route through this area, or re-build the old remnants of Scoup campground.  Visitors using this recently fire damaged area do so at their own risk.

All other areas of Mount Assiniboine Park are OPEN for public use, visit BC Parks online for further info.   

We look forward to seeing you in 2018!
